Securities Purchase Agreement and Private Placement

As previously reported, on April 23, 2020, Evofem Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company,” “we” or “us”) and its wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries (the “Guarantors”) entered into a Securities Purchase and Security Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors (the “Purchasers”) and their designated agent (the “Designated Agent”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Purchasers and the Purchasers agreed to purchase from the Company (i) convertible senior secured promissory notes (the “Notes”) in an aggregate principal amount of up to $25.0 million (the “Maximum Amount”) and (ii) warrants to purchase shares of common stock (the “Warrants”, and together with the Notes, the “Securities”) in a private placement (the “Private Placement”).

The initial closing occurred on April 24, 2020 (the “Initial Closing”) pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, whereby the Company issued and sold to the Purchasers and the Purchasers purchased from the Company $15.0 million of Notes (the “First Closing Notes”) and Warrants to be exercisable for a number of shares of common stock equal to 50% of the aggregate principal amount of the First Closing Notes divided by the exercise price of the Warrant.

On June 9, 2020 in a second closing under the Purchase Agreement (the “Second Closing”), the Purchasers elected to purchase from the Company an additional $10.0 million of Notes (the “Second Closing Notes”) and Warrants (the “Second Closing Warrants”) to be exercisable for a number of shares of common stock equal to 50% of the aggregate principal amount of the Second Closing Notes divided by the exercise price of the Warrant. As of the Second Closing, the initial conversion price of the Notes, including the Second Closing Notes, and the initial exercise price of the Warrants, including the Second Closing Warrants, was $2.44, but is subject to adjustment as described in the Warrants. The Warrants have a five-year term with customary exercise blockers (mirroring the conversion blocker under the Notes) and have other customary terms, including a cashless exercise provision and buy-in remedy. The Second Closing Notes are also secured by a pledge of substantially all of the assets, including intellectual property, of the Company and each of the Guarantors pursuant to the Intellectual Property Security Agreement (“IP Security Agreement”) by and among the Company, the Designated Agent, and the guarantors.

Upon completion of the First Closing and the Second Closing, the Company expects to use these net proceeds for the commercialization of PhexxiTM, clinical research and development purposes, and for general corporate purposes, although the Company’s management will have broad discretion in the use of these funds.

The Notes and Warrants were offered and sold in the Second Closing pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The Purchasers are accredited investors and purchased the securities as an investment in a private placement that did not involve a general solicitation. The shares to be issued upon conversion of the Second Closing Notes and exercise of the Second Closing Warrants have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States in the absence of an effective registration statement or exemption from the registration requirements. This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.





Registration Rights Agreement

In addition and as previously reported, pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company and the Purchasers may, at the request of the Designated Agent, enter into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company will grant to the Purchasers certain demand resale registration rights with respect to the common stock issuable upon conversion of the Note, exercise of the Warrants or any common stock acquired by the Purchasers hereafter (the  “Registrable Securities”). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, if and only if executed, the Company will be required, subject to limited exceptions, to file a registration statement covering the resale of the Registrable Securities by the Purchasers within 60 days following the request by a Purchaser. The Company, the Purchasers and certain of our and their affiliates will have reciprocal indemnification obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement. The rights under the Registration Rights Agreement will terminate automatically once all Registrable Securities cease to be Registrable Securities because of any of the following reasons (i) all Registrable Securities have been sold pursuant to an effective registration statement, (ii) all Registrable Securities have been sold by the Purchasers pursuant to Rule 144 as promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), (iii) all Registrable Securities may be resold by the Purchasers without limitations as to volume or manner or sale pursuant to Rule 144, or (iv) ten years have the date of the Registration Rights Agreement.

The foregoing summaries of certain of the material terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, the IP Security Agreement, the form of Note, the form of Warrant and the Registration Rights Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the documents attached hereto as exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 4.1 and 10.4, respectively.
